There have been a handful updates to embedding and file uploads:

  • mp4 files can now be uploaded
  • YouTube shorts links can now be embedded
  • TikTok links can now be embedded, but only using the long form of the URL (e.g. https://www.tiktok.com/@user/video/123456789012345)

In some cases, browsers with strict privacy settings will not allow TikToks to embed. This is not specific to this site, but a limitation of TikTok embedding in general. If you see a message indicating that an embed is not available, that is the most likely cause. As a fallback, in those cases the thumbnail will link to the video on the TikTok website instead of embedding it

No. 63524

Apologies for the site being unavailable for a few hours, our host had networking issues that they have now been able to resolve.

No. 65399

There have been a few small updates:

File uploads/embedding

  • .wepb files can now be uploaded. This also fixes some lingering "failed to resize image" errors, which were from files that were encoded as webp but had the .png extension
  • YouTube live videos can now be embedded
  • Fixed issue where TikToks that do not embed due to browser privacy settings were not correctly linking to the video on TikTok
  • Query strings are now stripped from embed URLs, which should mean that anons who are too retarded to remove them will now be able to embed videos
  • File upload window is filtered to show accepted file formats only by default

The site

  • Lazy loading added to images to improve page load performance
  • Issue with new banners not displaying has been fixed, and new banners have been added

Behind the scenes

  • A new way to automatically detect and ban known CSAM has been implemented. Between this and other measures that have previously been added, less than 1 in 5 attempts to post CSAM succeed

Small update that should curb the CSAM link spamming in /pt/. Since their image posts are no longer getting through, they've resorted to this instead.

Hellweek is over. In the next day or so we will update this thread with some statistics about moderator actions over the last 2 weeks, as well summary of what we have learned and any changes for the future.

The core of this community is (and always has been) discussing and documenting lolcows. This site exists to serve farmers. Part of the reason that board culture has degraded as much as it has is due to the number of posters who are not here for the milk, but instead to use /ot/ and /g/ like a chatroom and without any attempt to integrate or use the site as intended.

The quality of posting has also dropped significantly in recent weeks, particularly in relation to blatant bait being posted in /ot/, /g/, and in milk threads that attract a certain crowd (such as Tradthots). A lot of this traffic is from ban-evading spammers and tourists posting in bad faith, but they are only able to disrupt threads as much as they do because of how many users keep taking the bait. We have noticed that many long-term users see this for what it is and have been calling it out, but the number of other users who continue to engage with it have been exacerbating this problem significantly.

If you are not a farmer, you are merely a guest here. You are a welcome guest as long as you integrate and follow the rules. If you continuously post without regard for the rules or board etiquette and culture, that privilege can and will be revoked. Frequent rule-breaking, infighting and trolling will be met with a permanent ban. You can screech as much as you want about how the site will die without your low effort shitposts, but we do not care. Slower boards with better quality posts is preferable over the current state of the site.

During this Hellweek, we want to get the site health and quality of posting back on track, and we will be facilitating this in a number of ways:

  • All topicless, chat-style/shitposting threads will be locked for the duration. Do not make new threads to replace them. Do not try to cicumvent this by giving them new titles.
  • The cooldown required between making posts will be increased to 2 minutes (it is currently 30 seconds)
  • As it has been a particular problem, all posts breaking global rule 7 (racebaiting) will receive 3 day unappealable bans. Users with very little else in their post history will be assumed to be posting in bad faith and be permanently banned
  • Blackpill posting outside of /2X/ will be treated as bait and banned accordingly
  • Every response to blatant bait will receive a ban. Report bait and do not respond
  • Every post accusing someone of being a scrote/tranny will receive a ban. Report suspected males and do not respond
  • Reporting someone you disagree with for being a moid/tranny will receive a ban. The vast majority of reports we receive accusing a user of being male are incorrect. Women are not a monolith and can have opinions that you do not like
  • Reporting posts for retarded reasons will receive a ban, e.g. an anon posting an unpopular opinion in the Unpopular Opinion thread is not bait, please use your brain

As always, please use this thread to provide feedback on moderation decisions throughout the week!

Is it the insult Olympics retard?
Faggot is targeted towards men, bitch is nonspecific and broadly misogynistic, cunt has a variety of uses but is also nonspecific misogyny, nigga is a race-baiting term that actually could be targeted towards specific women and it is banned for race baiting for this reason. But yes, lets play insult Olympics to gauge what insults are most vile and targeted. Shit uncritical thought.

No. 69627

I don’t think nigga is banned, i see it used fairly frequently

No. 69628

Nta but "bitch" and "cunt" are misogynistic too, because they can only be used against women. No one calls men "bitches".

No. 69629

Yeah but they’re not banned and no one really cares if you use them here

I got redtexted for not saging when what I posted was technically milk (the ban has since expired). Is it now a rule that you have to sage ANY post without a image or an embedded video? I gave a reason for why I didn't embed the video, and even if I had, it would broken by now anyway because the cow DFE'd.
I just want to be clear: is it now a global rule that any pure-text post must be saged regardless of content? I'm fine with that, but it should be communicated better. I've been using this site for over six years and this is news to me.

Absolutely the boob job confirmation for Shay. So many nonnas were banned for titsperging only to be proven correct. Justice for these nonas

You are superrrr weird, you keep responding to yourself non-stop. You are trying to say thing in fiction=/=thing in real life, which sounds like what lolicons use to justify their child pornography. You cant expect everyone else to agree with you, specially since fiction does reflect in reality. If you agree that loli is cp, then why are you so angry when people say that the ''romance'' in those books is abusive? rules for thee but not for me it seems

No. 66273

Not all dumb romance novels are of abusive men and what is being categorized as 'abusive' is just cringey alpha shit >>>/m/339262

No. 66274

And reeing all anons are pedos/rapists because they disagree with you is newfaggotry sjw shit. If you can't handle disagreement and instead start sperging in multiple threads that anons must be pro-evil shit because they don't see the harm in it, expect to be banned.

No. 66275

People are obviously criticizing the abusive books, not all romance books.
No one is saying you are pedo/rapist, you made that up yourself. You use the same arguments pedo moids use when they defend loli ''uh ackshually women write loli too so that mean its okay!''. You cant expect to give such a bad argument and not get called out on it. No one would have cared if you liked your weird abuse YA novels where a kkk member falls in love with you if you didnt jump to defend it every single time like a rabid dog and accuse anyone who doesnt like that type of shit of being a moid.

This is a containment thread for meta discussion that doesn't fall into complaints and suggestions. Feel free to tinfoil or talk about the state of the site but try to avoid being too autistic.

If cerbmin needs to hear it, post it here.

While we generally avoid over-moderating in /meta/, we are currently being regularly spammed by a handful of schizos from the lolcow hate thread on crystal.cafe, and we are deleting their posts here. If you are concerned about us censoring valid criticism, you are welcome to check that thread.

There’s way too much minimodding going on in threads nowadays and it’s super annoying. I understand it if someone’s posting it in snow or pt or whatever, but if it’s in an offtopic or random thread it’s just ridiculous. The farmhands are being a bit too heavy handed with moderation, redtexting and handing out bans for very small offenses lately too which is kind of annoying.

Sharing information you have to go out of your way to find that gives personal information… Anon,I don't think you understand. Also there's the whole side of why is it being posted. If it is out of malicious intent, it can fall under doxxing. Just because the information is available doesn't mean you can't still dox them.

You're completely missing the point. Anons did this to Belle Delphine by spamming streets and different photos of her house and tried calling that "public knowledge". Doxxing isn't a one-size-fits-all. There are various ways to doxx someone. Posting public records isn't necessarily illegal though, if you are talking about arrests, but posting it can be unethical which could be why it was removed.
